ENJOY SUMMER. BUT DON’T TAKE A VACATION AWAY FROM GOD !
As we all know during the Summer months when the children are out of school, it becomes a time to rent and go to see the movies we haven’t had time to see during the busy school year. Sometimes families are not always sure of a movie, is it good for the whole family, just the younger children, teens or just for adults. If you do need some assistance deciding on movies for the family, you can go to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website: www.usccb.org, click on there movies category to get a listing of current and older movies. They will give a description of each movie, and a rating if it is for family, teens or adults, also you can even get information on current television programming and even for theatrical events. This is a wonderful way to get information on movies, television programming, and the theatre when not sure of what is appropriate for family member viewing. In 1995 for the 100th Anniversary of the cinema, the Vatican complied a list of the 45 great films for viewing, divided into the following categories of “Religion”, “Values”, and “Art”. Here is the list they came up with:

Reflection by Father Ted – June 16, 2008
My Lord Jesus, everyday You try to teach me. Help me to be willing to learn from You. You have so much to teach me. I have so much to learn. The chief lesson that You want to teach me is this: God is love. When He created me – in His image and in His likeness, He made me out of love. He made me to love – just as He loves. I know that before I can love, I must realize that I am loveable. Part of that responsibility has been given to my parents. That is why You remind parents on the day of the baptism of their child that they are the first teachers of their child and we pray that they be the best of teachers. But to teach they must first be taught. You have given to us, Your disciples, the command to teach – just as You taught Your first disciples. You taught them by words and by actions – above all by the way You lived and by the way You died. You told Your first disciples to teach others everything that You taught them. What did You teach – essentially – that God is love and he who abides in love abides in God and God in him. You taught them what the Father taught the Israelites through Moses – the commandments. You clarified the meaning of the commandments to Your disciples. You brought them to fulfillment. After the greatest commandment – which is to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind and strength – with our whole being – in everything, You reminded us that the new commandment is to love others – not as we love ourselves – but as You love each one of us. So help me Jesus to love as You have taught – to love Your Father, to love You, and to love Your Holy Spirit. So help me Jesus to love others as You love me. Help me to love.
